tftp server Windows - Windows Stable 1.6
Last Update: Jan 10 2009 tftp;
MultiThreaded TFTP Server Open Source Freeware for PXEBOOT, firmware load, support tsize, blksize, timeout and Server Port Ranges, Block Number Rollover for Large Files. Can be installed as Service/daemon.
Despite being small for purposes of speed and security, many more complicated FTP setups are achievable with vsftpd! By no means an exclusive list, vsftpd will handle:
* Virtual IP configurations
* Virtual users
* Standalone or inetd operation
* Powerful per-user configurability
* Bandwidth throttling
* Per-source-IP configurability
* Per-source-IP limits
* Encryption support through SSL integration
As stated you can use vsftp for your needs. Look at 'vsftp'.
Distribution: Solaris 9 & 10, Mac OS X, Ubuntu Server

You're right, but it doesn't appear to have changed since 12.
"if you must" would generally apply if you have network devices that use bootp and tftp to get their configuration files. That would be the only use you would make of it. tftp is not allowed to go just anywhere and transfer files. You restrict it to /tftpboot, and you use tcpwrappers to restrict tftp access to a subnet of your own network where your switches and devices reside.
Thanks everybody for all the help. - And for not flaming me on such a 'lame-type' question.
No - I'm not using bootpd or tftpd to deliver files to a COMPUTER.
I'm using tftpd to deliver configuration files to Cisco 79xx IP-Phones. - The Cisco phone uses tftp (port 69) so if I used a bootpd server, I'd have to mess around with changing it's ports.
While frantically searching for 'tftpd' and not finding it, I was overlooking that I had 'in.ftpd' installed all the time (argh!!). - All I had to do was un-rem the line that called it up in inetd.conf and was good to go.
True, I've used ftpd on Windoze boxes for one-off configs but this case was a little different. The Slack-12.0 box running Asterisk also replaced my router and also is a dhcpd server for the whole office. With some 60+ phones in the office, it was fairly easy to get 'em all at the same firmware level, 'generic' configs set, and specific configs set. This company's CHEAP so the phones are all used & came from all over the place including E-Bay and there were about 20 different firmware versions loaded it seemed. Thankfully each phone has a bar-code for the MAC and I wrote a Perl script to write the phone specific files. All I had to do was get all the files right then go around the office & re-boot each phone.
Again - Thanks for all your help. - After the above, you can now see why I need a tftpd server & in.tftpd works GREAT!!
